JWO (Not-So-)Scaries

Nicole Pollack, Middlebury College

width="600"

Things I learned on my first day as JWO (junior watch officer): it’s not as scary as it seems, your watch has your back, and when in doubt, the JWO survival guide holds the answer. It turns out calling the shots is a lot of fun, especially when everybody else’s goal is to help the JWO succeed.

Science, Sea Legs, and Singalongs (Oh My!)

Izzy Slaymaker, Tufts University

width="707"

Ahoy readers! Welcome back to another exciting installment of the C-289 blog! Yesterday was our first full day underway after our Grenada port stop. With all the Mama Mia we’ve been singing, the phrase that comes to mind is “here we go again.”

Return to the Sea

Jessie Sheldon, Colorado College

Spend a Semester at Sea

Ahoy! Jessie from C-watch here, writing from our on-board library which is back to its usual rocking and rolling since our departure from Napier this afternoon. The day began with a deck sweep for C-watch. One aspect of sea life I hadn’t thought about before this semester is that the accumulation of dirt is rather dependent on our greatest dirt source: land! Following the sweep, we had the morning off to head into Napier for last minute errands.

Hello outside world! It’s Third Scientist Ella Cedarholm, class of S-278 alum and A Watch officer, here to offer a glimpse of life aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer on December 4, 2019. Our Wednesday began largely the same as any other - with breakfast and chores.

To Land and Back

George Edison, Vassar College

Today was a day of celebration, as not one, but two shipmates had birthdays today, Jessie, and Jeff! We just rounded out the day, which was sunny and warm, with carrot cupcakes and a couple of rounds of Happy Birthday singing, including a Danish rendition by our resident Dane, Amelia.

Grapes in Peril

Natalie Greenbaum, UMass Amherst

Hello bloggies!

Natalie here from C Watch. Today was a wonderful day. We had some free time this morning to explore the art deco-d streets of Napier and do some laundry (yay!). Later in the afternoon, we went a winery and learned all about the effects of climate change on the winery industry.

The Island Life

Daniel Karparis, University of Maine Orono

Study Abroad at Sea

Ahoy and land ho from Grenada! My name is Dan Karparis and I am currently a junior at the University of Maine in Orono, where it is most certainly not 29°C and sunny, sorry not sorry. I am currently writing this blog for December 3rd in the library of the SSV Corwith Cramer on December 4th at around 2100 (only eight hours after leaving the beautiful and friendly island of Grenada).

On Shore in Napier!

Rachel Clausen, B-Watch, Salisbury University

width="492"

After a restful night sleep at anchor my watch (B) and I arose at 0600 to a delicious breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and kiwi and to start to steer the boat into port! It was a pretty short drive as we anchored only about an hour and half trip away from where we were in port. It was an absolutely gorgeous morning and the ride over was super peaceful

Mandoo’s Friends

Courtney Dunham, Mount Holyoke College

width="650"

Greetings from C-289 in Grenada! We had an action-packed day going on a tour of the island! We started off our adventure with a stretching exercise led by Cody, our steward, in the marina parking lot. We then met our tour guide, Mandoo Seales, and boarded the air-conditioned van (emphasis on the air conditioning).

A Day of Necessities and Joy!

Ciara Olmstead, Mount Holyoke College

width="650"

Hi Folks! Greeting from the Corwith Cramer and Grenada. My name is Ciara Olmstead and I am a sophomore at Mount Holyoke College. I am on B Watch here on the ship, so I was not awake for our arrival in Grenada. I had been on watch from 1900 to 0100 the previous night, so I relished the opportunity to sleep in until 1030, a rare luxury.
